100 things to hate before your die

 About the Book 

If George Carlin, Greg Giraldo, and Sebastian Maniscalco had a baby. . . it would be f**king weird because none of them have a uterus and two of them are dead. But if it were possible, you’d get 100 Things to Hate Before You Die.

Claudia Baking

A funny, relatable, and irreverent escape for comedy fans who are fed up with everything going on in the world but can still find humor in the dumb and dumber.

In this uproarious, honest, and biting collection of essays, stand-up comedian, Monsters of Rock morning show DJ, and Madhouse Magazine writer Claudia Stavola shares her unapologetic rantings, true stories, lists, observations, silly solutions to serious problems, and absolute fury over inconsequential things like the shorts-all-year-long guy and Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina candle, to more provocative topics such as angry “patriotic” guys, and dating show dimwits.

How many times a day do you shake your head in disbelief over other people’s behavior (and then take a picture of it to post on social media)? Have you ever wanted to choke out the self-absorbed idiots who have gender reveal parties...with explosives... in a desert? And how many people per day do you want to body slam for their crummy, juvenile Facebook posts?

Book Covers

There are plenty of guides for where to travel, what to eat, or what to watch before you die, but when you’re flooded with antipathy over just about everything, it’s hard to know where to direct your disdain. Claudia is here to help! 100 Things to Hate Before You Die is an easy-to-read collection of fiery musings that will help you focus on what to hate and why.

Get ready for a ride of emotions—you’ll go from pissed off to more pissed off—but in the most hilarious, engaging, and funny way possible.

So sit back, light your vag candle (as long as you’re not at a gender reveal during a drought), and get ready to laugh!

It's all about me

 Bio Curious 

"Bios written in the third person
are douchey"

Bios written in the third person are douchey (If I wrote this in the third person I couldn’t use made up words like douchey). Anyone can write whatever they want to inflate their image. Have I brought down the house before? Absolutely! Have I also eaten a poop sandwich on stage? I sure have … especially when performing for a bunch of drunken gamblers in jorts at a casino. They tend not to hear anything after “free tickets” and assume they’re headed to a Cher extravaganza, not a frizzy-haired girl talking about stretch pants and camel toe.
Being involved with irrational lunatics most of my life (e.g. bosses, coworkers, and one-sided friendships) along with being a social outcast, I realized that I’d rather laugh than cry … and my brain might be made of penis.
I haven’t been “fantasizing about my wedding since I was a little girl.”

I’d rather watch an Impractical Jokers marathon than join the gals for a mani-pedi day. And I don’t believe in “girl code.” I believe in human code.

My comedy doesn’t aim to please or offend any specific group. It’s comedy for people who just “get it.” I’m inspired by never fitting in; being fascinated by people’s robotic interests (religion; buffets; Big Bang Theory) and being annoyed by super-white white people.

In addition to stand-up, I’m the author of 100 Things to Hate Before You Die, a writer for Madhouse Magazine, and the weekday morning host for Monsters of Rock on Dash Radio—which boasts over 800,000 listeners per day. But my greatest accomplishments thus far are never having a desire to own a Coach, Louis Vuitton, or Gucci pocketbook, and never having seen Meredith Baxter-Birney or Nancy McKeon domestically abused in a Lifetime movie.
